Your Purpose Of Love

Each of us comes into this world with a purpose.  Our small mind might try to think of some grand purpose that will change the world.  And, some of us do.  When I think of purpose; however, I think of the everyday expression of what we are: Love.

Love is the innate power that has the capacity to change not only our lives, but race consciousness.  Love has the capacity to awaken us to a deeper and wider understanding of what we have come here to be and do, and to make a true difference  in the world.

The love I speak of is not love as the world would define love.  It is not sensual love that is based on the arousing of our senses and creating a desirable feeling within us.  It is not conditional love that is based on how I feel in the moment about what someone is or is not doing, and whether or not it meets my expectations.  Love is the ever present Presence expressing in, through, and as each and every one of us.

Love is impersonal.  This thought used to upset me.  My experience of the Divine has a great deal of personal meaning for me.  By saying love is impersonal, what I am saying is God, loves without conditions.  This love simply flows drawing to itself that which responds to its love bringing harmony to everything and everyone.   In truth, we are microcosms of the macro-cosmic Love.

It’s one thing to know intellectually that we are love, and it is something completely different to express that love unconditionally every moment of every day.  When we recognize that we may fall a bit short, we can experience the feeling of shame.   Since God is love, and love is non conditional; love never shames.  Love forgives and restores to balance that which we are ready to have transformed.

True love is the power that awakens within us deeper understandings of who we are and our connection with everyone and everything.  Love is the divine energy that brings life to our creations.  As the great harmonizing power of the universe, love brings into balance that which is out of balance, and it does it in ways that are meaningful for those involved.  Meaning, Love shows up precisely  as we need it to and exactly as we call it into form.

Love is more than God getting us out of a difficulty or challenge.  Love is more than creating the perfect experience of life.  Love is more than creating a world that works for all.  Love is the unbound energy that awakens us to our oneness with God, ourselves and our neighbors, which in turn results in creating the perfect experience of life for ourselves, our neighbors,  and the world at large.  Love is the way we make a lasting difference in the world.

What are the ways in which we can consciously engage the activity of love in our lives?  Find ways to express it.  Pray for others to experience love.  Imagine yourself sharing your love with them.  Feel that love within you grow.  Another way to express the love within us is to affirm the power of love at work in situations that our intellect judges as wrong.  It can be as simple as holding an affirmation that is higher than your current experience.  One that stretches your faith, hope, and love.

This week we are given permission to demonstrate our love for others by celebrating Valentine’s Day.  May you experience the unconditional love of God moving through you and making a difference in the world.
